  • I'm not really sure about the itching and peeling but my first sign of pregnancy was sore nipples

  • I'm not sure about the itching. But by peeling, do you mean like little, dried up, white stuff? If so, hunnie, you're leaking and need to buy nursing bras. I'm at 27 weeks and started lactating about 2 weeks ago, and my closest friend is 28 weeks and started lactating 2 months ago.
    But yes, the sore nipples and breasts is one of the very first noticable symptoms of pregnancy.

  • White bumps do appear on your nipples when you're pregnant. They're called Montgomery glands, and they keep the nipple from getting chapped while nursing.
